We are incredibly grateful to all of our partners and supporters who make our work possible, whether through donations, fundraising, volunteering or pro-bono support.
EYH Corporate Partners
End Youth Homelessness is a group of charities and businesses that have joined forces to raise awareness, gather support and lobby government to make a change. Local partners have been nurtured and developed over time with small, medium and large companies who are keen to give back to their local community.
In March 2018 we completed a year long partnership with Tesco Bank that began in March 2017 after we were nominated and voted for by their Edinburgh HQ staff to be ‘Charity of the Year’. Throughout the partnership the staff were highly engaged and committed, fundraising furiously and organising activities like; 3 Peaks Challenge, a Golf day and a quiz night. A team of 40 staff also took part in Sleep Out 2017.
The support we received also included essential food and clothes drives. In June last year, staff did a ‘Give to the girls’ campaign and collected over 85 sanitary items packages that we have been able to distribute amongst our young women. In October they also ran a ‘winter clothes drive’.
Some of the team had the opportunity to volunteer with us, mainly getting their overalls on, to paint and decorate some of our flats. These flats are occupied by some of our young people and moving in to somewhere which has been freshly decorated can make a huge difference to how they make that flat their home.
“The efforts, enthusiasm and engagement of the Tesco Bank staff is fantastic. I’ve never worked alongside such committed corporate fundraisers. They listen and understand to what we need and what’s of value to us – their partnership and fundraising activity allows us to provide our services to the most vulnerable young people in our community.” Kate Dixon, Corporate Fundraising Co-ordinator, The Rock Trust
“We are proud to support Rock Trust enabling them to deliver their vital services to young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. They are a charity whose values, beliefs and commitment to the local community match our own.” Chris Newton, Community Investment Manager, Tesco Bank.
